On an especially safe Top Gear, Jeremy swaned around in a Saab and James popped on his wellies and went driving around an estate, in an estate. We sent comedy genius Rob Brydon out for a quick lap of the Top Gear test track. Rob's good mates with driving nut Steve Coogan, so it was his ambition to beat Coogan's lap time of 1.53 in the wet, which he did, with a time of 1.48. Nice! James drove the Subaru Legacy, a car that, while quite pleasant, wasn't going to turn any heads. Exactly the sort of car the aristocracy want, then. You could easily get a couple of hounds and possibly even a horse in the boot. The Legacy's also sturdy and can cope with as many five-year-olds called Archibald and Reginald as you can throw at it. It's also got some wonderful gadgets. Finally, we looked at the Saab 95, the most instantly forgettable car in the entire universe. People who own Saabs are nice people. They don't cut you up, they don't honk their horn at you and they never lean out of their window and call you names that would make a sailor blush. So if you're nice, you should buy one.
